Step Up Your Site's SEO Score with Super Simple Syndication 
FeedBack ( 0) A mouthful, yes! But there's two very important topics in that one title.

So first, the big announcement: Super Simple Syndication -- simple because it's scriptless.

Henceforth, you can syndicate (embed) an Enfeedia hosted feed on your website without uploading a script to your website. Previously, in addition to inserting a small PHP code snippet that invoked the syndication process, you needed to upload a sizable piece of PHP software to do the heavy lifting.

Now, just use one of five newly defined code snippets to invoke the Super Simple Syndication method at Enfeedia. Think of it as Syndication as a Service, and for you, it's scriptless. The result of the syndication process is that your code snippet is replaced by the HTML code for the feed you want syndicated. You get to optionally specify how many of the items are to appear, and how long each item description is, in terms of characters, before encountering a "read more" link. These options give you control over your website real estate.

I'll get to the other important topic in a moment, but first, why are we doing this? Not only does it make it a heck of a lot easier to syndicate a feed (even the snippet is much simpler), but also we're concerned that some of you may be hesitant to upload a complex script to your website being unsure of how it might affect your website's operation. Now, your site tells Enfeedia what feed you want syndicated, and Enfeedia returns precisely the HTML code for the feed which replaces the snippet. That's it.

To learn all about our Super Simple Syndication feature, visit our Promote Feeds page. You can be syndicating your feed in minutes.

Super Simple Syndication is available to Premium members. But stay tuned for a blockbuster announcement about upgrading from the Communicator plan, coming very very soon!

If you wish, you can continue to use Enfeedia's Original Syndication method wherein you upload the script and insert the code snippet. The instructions for the original process continues to be presented on the Promote Feeds page.

Now that other important topic: Syndication for Search Engine Optimization

Having shown how easy it is to syndicate your feed on your website, we want to stress how incredibly valuable it is to do that! If it's important that your website rank high in search engine result pages (SERPs), then syndicating your feed is a vital element of your overall SEO strategy.

Why's that? Because search engines value fresh content that's relevant to the rest of the page, and reward sites with embedded RSS feeds that indicate frequently updated content. It stands to reason that a search engine would consider a website that routinely provides updated information to site visitors as more valuable to surfers than stagnant sites. Search engines also index websites more frequently that they come to know as offering fresh content so that internet searches yield current information. Documentation "out there" confirms that Google gives value to maintaining fresh content.

So, syndicate your feed on your website, post your original articles frequently (weekly to monthly works well), and make sure the theme of your articles is consistent with the rest of the webpage (after all, you don't want to confuse search engines as to what your page is about). The good news is, as you have just learned, syndicating your feed on your website has become very easy. And each time you post an item on your feed, your webpage is automatically updated without you lifting a finger. To be perfectly clear, you do not upload your feed to your website whenever you post an item. Enfeedia effectively does that for you through this syndication process.

Just like I said, Step Up Your Site's SEO Score with Super Simple Syndication. You've invested in one or more feeds, start syndicating them now to wring more value out of them.

News from the Enfeedia.com News Feed Publishing Service

FOR WEBSITE PUBLISHERS
You can publish this feed in two ways. (1) Simply by installing a link to this feed on your website, or (2) by syndicating (embedding) a portion of the the actual feed content on your website.


(1) Linking to This NewsPage

The following link for this NewsPage can be used to form an anchor text link for your website:

http://www.enfeedia.com/enfeedia/enfeedia.php

Alternatively, you can install an RSS NewsPage icon enfeedia news feed reader on your website using this link:

<a href="http://www.enfeedia.com/enfeedia.php"><img src="http://www.enfeedia.com/enfeedia_01.gif" border="0"></a>


(2) Syndicating This Feed Using Enfeedia's 'Super Simple Syndication'

Syndication of RSS feeds simply means that the feed content or portion thereof is embedded on one or more websites (RSS = Really Simple Syndication).

If your website server supports PHP -- and virtually all of them do -- you can display the contents of this feed directly on your website. You select how many of the most recent items and the length of the items to display.

You implement this by simply inserting either of the two following PHP code snippets on your website. The first arranges items in a vertical column whereas the second in a horizontal row. (Be sure to take into account your webpage width when using the row orientation).

Both snippets provide a basic presentation of the most recent three items showing a maximum of approximately 300 characters, inheriting colors and style from the page syndicating the feed. You can change the number of items displayed by changing the NI parameter in the snippet. Similarly, you can change the length of items displayed by changing the LI parameter.

Vertical Presentation of Items:

file_get_contents("http://www.enfeedia.com/SOS.php?T=BB&P=col&AN=enfeedia&FN=enfeedia&NI=3&LI=300;)

Horizontal Presentation of Items:

file_get_contents("http://www.enfeedia.com/SOS.php?T=BB&P=row&AN=enfeedia&FN=enfeedia&NI=3&LI=300;)

The above snippets use Enfeedia's "Super Simple Syndication" eliminating the need to upload any scripts to syndicate feeds. You can explore syndication methods by going to the Enfeedia home page and selecting the "Promote/Syndicate" menu item. You will learn how to fully customize the presentation of the feed on your website. For this feed, use account name enfeedia and then select feed enfeedia.
